This month we are increasing our “in-person” learning up to four hours each day (8:00AM- 12:00 PM). We will continue to work remotely on Wednesdays in order to provide planning for teachers, time to work on packets, provide professional development and conference individually with students. Afternoons from 1:30 until 3:00 PM, students will be working with teachers remotely on curriculum in math and literacy. We will also be having our music program “in-person” on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week for the remainder of the school year.
We recently sent out a survey to parents to better understand how we can support our students this summer and next fall as we recover from the Pandemic and the impact it has had on our students. The Learning Recovery Team will review the parent and student feedback. We will identify key elements from this information to support all our students.
We are just receiving our new science materials in preparation for implementing our Amplify STEM science learning next fall. We are excited to have new materials to support student learning in this area. We are also preparing to update more of our literacy materials next fall in the lower grades (K-3).
This time of year is always so spectacular. My wife is an amazing gardener. She is excellent and maintaining beautiful plants and shrubs (I, on the other hand, am attempting to learn how to keep those plants from dying!!) Spring is the time of new beginnings. What a time for an explosion of color!! When the plants and trees start to bloom- it makes everything seem like new!
As we move forward with this springtime, let’s work to make a difference in the lives of those people around us. We want to finish strong as we come to the home stretch of our school year. As you are out enjoying all the color and fresh air… take some time to figure out how you can make a difference in the lives of family and your community.
All the best,
